Manchester United were thrashed 6-1 by Spurs at Old Trafford in their third EPL match of the 2020/21 season. The club headed into the International break with this disastrous loss against Tottenham and also after failing to sign any of Ole’s primary targets in the transfer window.
However the Red devils were able to Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles on the deadline day. Despite these signings many former players and fans of MUFC are disappointed with the mentality of some of the existing players. Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane ahead of England’s game warned Ole that his players are going to cost him his job soon.
Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole Gunnar Solksjaer
Though Ole managed to finish 3rd in the league last season his tactics were questioned by many. Several fans and players questioned why Ole is not being hard at his players which will help them in the long run. His tactics and character was further put to question after his disastrous start to the new EPL season. Ole has been under heavy criticisms after his defeats to Crystal Palce and Spurs. Reports also suggest that Manchester United have contacted Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ole in the long run.
Ahead of England’s game against Wales yesterday Roy Keane spoke about how disappointed he is with some of the players at Manchester United. Speaking on ITV, Keane said: “The performance against Spurs was disgraceful. We’ve all been in football and we’ve had bad days – but it was literally a disgrace to the badge from some of the players’ performance. Too many bluffers and ultimately I think they will cost Ole his job. The players he’s got there, they’ve thrown the previous manager under the bus, and they’ll do exactly the same to Ole.”
Manchester United are having a tough month ahead as they will be playing Chelsea, PSG and RB Leipzig this month. It is to be noted that Manchester United have been drawn in one of the toughest groups in the UCL. Their group consists of 2 of the last year’s UCL heavyweights RB Leipzig and PSG.
